Wor(l)d of Morrissey
  We're back! Welcome to the world of Morrissey's lyrics.

This site and all of the work made to keep it updated during the last 25 years are dedicated to my beloved friend MaCa65 who suddenly left this lonely planet
and me without words. Throughout the short stretch of time that we have been given to spend together as close friends, we shared many things,
thoughts, passions and some bits of Life. Back in 1983, together we discovered a band called The Smiths and together since then, we followed Morrissey's career
as one of the most influential and inspiring singer/artist/poet of our age. Maca65 has always been a strong supporter since when I first launched WoM,
so this is and will always be entirely for you, my friend. -- David

(Marie's The Name) His Latest Flame

A very old friend
Came by today
'Cause he was telling everyone in town
Of the love that he just found
And Marie's the name
Of his latest flame

He talked and talked
And I heard him say
That she had the longest blackest hair
The prettiest green eyes anywhere.
And Marie's the name
Of his latest flame

Though I smiled, the tears inside were burning
I wished him luck
And then he said goodbye
He was gone
But still his words kept returning
What else was there for me
To do but cry?

Would you believe
That yesterday
This girl was in my arms
And swore to me she'd be mine eternally
And Marie's the name
Of his latest flame

This song originally performed by Elvis Presley was never recorded by the Smiths. Morrissey sang the first two verses as an intro to "Rusholme Ruffians" on latter Smiths' live performances. A fine version of the medley is included in the live album "Rank".

(Marie il nome) La sua ultima fiamma

Un caro vecchio amico
è venuto a trovarmi oggi
Se ne andava in giro dicendo a tutti
dell'amore che aveva appena trovato
E Marie è il nome
della sua ultima fiamma

Ha parlato e parlato
e l'ho sentito dire
che lei ha i capelli più lunghi e più neri
gli occhi verdi più carini di qualsiasi altro posto
E Marie è il nome
della sua ultima fiamma

Anche se sorridevo, le lacrime dentro mi bruciavano
Gli ho augurato buona fortuna
e poi lui mi ha detto addio
Se n'era andato
ma le sue parole continuavano a ritornare
Cos'altro rimane per me da fare
se non piangere?

Ci crederesti
che solo ieri
questa ragazza era fra le mie braccia
e mi aveva giurato che sarebbe stata mia per sempre
E Marie è il nome
della sua ultima fiamma

Questa canzone originariamente eseguita da Elvis Presley non è mai stata registrata dagli Smiths. Morrissey cantò le prime due strofe come introduzione a "Rusholme Ruffians" nelle ultime performance dal vivo della band. E' possibile ascoltare il medley dei due brani nell'unico LP live ufficiale degli Smiths "Rank".
